  • No Live Traffic Updates
    Reviewed by Tara - May 2, 2019

    We bought this GPS because it is illegal to use our cell phones for GPS maps (while driving in British Columbia). We liked our old Garmin but it lacked LIVE traffic updates so after the new law, we decided to buy a new GPS. Best Buy's description specifically said, "Live traffic updates give you the information you need for speedier routes or time management to reach your destination", and the live traffic is a feature we've come to rely on. Ordered online and picked it up today. It does NOT offer live traffic updates so it is useless to us. Pretty disappointed that Best Buy can't even get the description correct on their website. Returning it tomorrow. Waste of time! Ugh!

  • Awesome!
    Reviewed by Dianne - November 15, 2020

    Bought this gps for our trip to BC and Alberta. At first I wasn’t sure about this product but it worked perfectly well throughout our trip. Everything was updated (for the main roads) and i liked the feature where it asked you for an alternate route to avoid tolls. A couple of things for improvement: 1. Please include a clear instruction slip. It was my first time buying a gps and the instruction it came with was not as helpful so i had to search for videos on youtube on how to use it. But it’s just me, i guess. 2. I dont know if there’s a way to update if there’s road closures or signs that you cannot turn. There were times i had to detour and cant follow the gps because there are road closures so that took a little bit of time. Otherwise most of it is updated. Overall, the experience with this one is amazing and it was easy to follow. The features are perfect for a roadtrip and it was easy to navigate. It made our trip a lot more fun and less hassle to navigate locations.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • routing issues, does not always turn on.
    Reviewed by PReusch - September 22, 2018

    I had a Garmin unit for years and it was great. So, when it was time for a replacement I chose a Garmin. I am very disappointed. Upon receipt, I chose to test it's routing ability in my area before trusting it on a longer unfamiliar trip. Three times instead of directing me to simply go straight down the road to an intersection or on-ramp, it sent me in a circle. And, despite being fully charged and plugged into a power source, the unit will not always turn on when the power button is pressed. I have sent an email to Garmin to report the power on issue. Let's see if they respond.

  • Quick routing. Always up to date maps.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by fakeis200 - September 16, 2017

    Used it in Toronto for holiday. Usual usage in TX. Good response in finding routes and all landmarks. Great to know I can update the map all the time. Size is not too small for viewing and not too large for taking it on a vacation. Much more reliable than using your smartphone's map guidance. For this price, it is a steal. Especially if you're the type who rent a NAV as well when you are renting a car. Get the same NAV that the rental car companies charge you for $20 a day. Those NAV have old maps and are useless anyway.
